For some, the bravest thing a person could ever do is to admit that they’ve fallen in love.

Saying the words out loud changes everything and there’s no way to take them back. It’s impossible to pluck the words out of the air and slip them into their back pocket to keep the truth safely tucked away.

The best feeling in the en

Dirty Filthy Rich Men (Dirty Duet #1):

Donovan FUCKING Kincaid!! **fucking swoon**

Ya'll ... okay, so this story ... these people ... I don't even know the word for this LOL It's addictive for sure. It's an #eyetwitch kind of story of the greatest proportions. You will not be able to stop reading, even thru all the back and forth whiplash. I have read some seriously good duets in the past but this book just surpasses all kinds of level of good. When I fi

Two of the stories were off the charts 5 stars reads for me, and for Sinner and Hostage alone, this anthology is worth the read! Half-Truths was a wild 4 star read, and The Dirty Duet didn’t really speak to me at all. All were great stories, all offered a little something different, and there is definitely something here that will appeal to you

Well, what a tempting collection of authors. So far, I have only read Hostage, but I would love to read the rest.

As it is, let me tell you about Hostage, which is enough to make this bundle worth it.

Dark romance is a guilty pleasure. For the never simple reason that it delves deep in your phyche and kindles its most secretive desires. In the hands of these two authors, the guilt and the pleasure take a new, twisted, unbearably intimate meaning.

Imagine a flower of a girl and a soulless killer me

***This review is for Half Truths by Claire Contreras***

I can’t remember the last time I’ve read a book quite like this and that’s probably because I haven’t. Somehow in this world where it often seems as though everything has already been done before, Claire Contreras managed to create something incredibly unique. My first introduction to this book was the cover and in this case, go right ahead and judge this book because the story on the pages inside is equally as beautiful as the image on the

This review is for Half Truths by Claire Contreras


I was absolutely blown away with Half Truths. It captured my attention and truly made for a unforgettable, unputdownable read. Half Truths is a top favorite of mine this year and I really hope we get more books set in this world!

After transferring senior year of college, Amelia “Mae” Bastón embarks on a path to uncover the mysterious disappearance of a fellow student and to really know what happened with her brother to whom she is extremely clos

All this perfection came at the perfect time! The whole anthology is filled with darkness and mystery and betrayal and awakenings and all the things that make you uncomfortable while still managing to get you hot and bothered. If you haven't already read these books separately, then now is the perfect time to grab this mixture of authors with tales that will set the pages on fire and keep you reeling until the very end.

I read this book mostly for Claire Contreras. Her story Half Truths was incredible!!! So unique and interesting!!! This was a love story built around an intriguing amount of secrets and lies in Mae's life. Logan, as much as I found myself wanting to dislike him (you'll understand when you read) he was downright hard to resist!! The story behind the story was so good, and so unexpected!!! I could not put Half Truths down. Claire never fails to impress.
The rest of the stories were amazing as well.

This box set was pure gold!!!!! Seriously-every single story was a SIX star for me. Interestingly enough, I’ve never read these authors before-which is why I jumped at the chance to read.
My most favorite story in this bundle was Laurelin Paige’s. The angst level was off the charts-and it was real broken hearted emotions I felt to my core.
These stories are all equally amazing, and this should be one clicked as soon as possible!

Half truths was an amazing read! A riveting story that completely amazes and confounds you! To say I was enthralled with this book is just the beginning of how much I loved it! The complexity in the characters...the richness of the story and above all, the anticipation of what may happen next. The twists and turns of amelia and Logan’s story will astound you and you will keep wanting more! Amazing job!

What an amazing collection by an amazing group of authors. Some of these authors I already knew about and read and some are new to me and I have now added to my list. These are full length novels that will you grasping at anything you can get your hand on so you don't blast off your bed or seat. They grip you and won't let you go. I was hooked. ...more

This collection of books is absolutely fantastic. I really have enjoyed both books so far from Top Shelf Romance. I’m so happy to be able to read five brand new authors to me. It was a great way to be introduced and get a taste of their writing style. I really think reading collections like this or anthologies are a solid way to introduce yourself to new authors. Each of these stories kept me glued to my kindle and I was surprised how much each of these drew me into them. I didn't not want to pu ...more

Like its predecessor, this collection of romance novels does indeed belongs to the top shelf! I love that the entire series is included in the collection, not just a book or two.

The Dirty Duet by Laurelin Paige had me hooked from the first few pages. There's something about the author's writing that had me turning pages like a madwoman, eager and anxious to see what happens next. Donovan Kincaid is the very definition of the term "alphahole" and Sabrina... well, Sabrina somehow managed to drag m

HOLY HELL! Need You Now is a brilliant collection of full length books from several brilliant authors that you cannot go wrong with, especially if you're dark & twisty like I am, and these stories feed that deep down issue. Since the stories all kinds of twisty themselves, I'm not about to go into details because it could give something away, especially with all of those twists! They're the intense kind of twists that you never see coming, but they not only shock you, but enraged me at the same ...more

This collection of authors is sure to melt your panties off with their stories! Laurelin Paige's Heroes are all mouth watering alpha billionaires with something to prove...or disprove. In the Dirty Duet, our Hero, Donovan Kincaid attempts to hide his feelings for our heroine, Sabrina. As cool and aloof as he often comes across, there's always a rhyme and reason for his actions and decisions. "He" keeps us guessing, and we have to trust the author to reveal his motives in due time.

The Dirty Duet by Laurelin Paige- alot of steam and kink with a side of stalker tendencies; check. Donovan is just the alpha asshole every girl needs in her life. 4/5 stars.
Half Truths by Claire Contreras- suspense and slow burn heat. While I enjoyed the last few chapters of this story, I found myself taking many breaks while reading. The plot seems to be all over in my opinion. Amelia is supposed to be investigating secret societies for her school paper but the story gives no clear hints to wha
